haha yeah man that's the best approach, just work through em all starting in 66. TDIH features one of those short raw ones, 7/1/66, that I've always liked. My favorites will probably always be 3/18/67, 8/4/67 (or is that 8/5?), and 11/10/67.

Somehow I never got around to checking out that early show from 3/20/70 until just a few months ago, got on a big aud/1970 kick and finally got around to it. I gotta agree, that is a bit of an overlooked little gem of a set.

If you're into the more modern versions (I'm not all that hot on them, but some are cool), try Phil and Friends, St. Louis, 7/10/01. They sandwich it throughout the second set, playing it a total of 4 times, one of which includes a nice Eleven jam. Don't neglect the opening Alligator>Sugaree, and the first set jam with Weir.
